Scripture dating while separated
Let’s face it, separation is a sad but sometimes necessary action needed to protect the physical/emotional well being of the person who leaves and/or the children involved.
For example, if a husband is physically violent against his wife or kids, the person in this abusive relationship should seek assistance and remove themselves from that dangerous situation.
Putting whatever the Scriptures have to say on the subject aside for a moment, in Family Court we teach there are many other practical reasons and pitfalls why “singles to be” should avoid dating during marital separation.
This is not in God’s perfect plan for marriage and family, even if it has become acceptable in our culture.
“Live happily with the woman you love through all the meaningless days of life that God has given you in this world.
The wife God gives you is your reward for all your earthly toil” (Ecclesiastes 9:9).
First Corinthians –11 says, “A wife must not leave her husband.
And the husband must not leave his wife.” Separation is never an ideal situation, but because of sin, it is sometimes necessary.
